Real Madrid reject Ferland Mendy request for pay-rise

Real Madrid have rejected Ferland Mendy's request for a pay-rise.

Marca says with 42 appearances in all competitions, he has become one of the first names on the team sheet and now the Frenchman has asked for a pay rise to reflect his performances and the number of matches he has played. However, the club are unwilling to contemplate this.

A new situation

Mendy's 45 million euro value upon completing his move to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu has now increased to 50m euros, having established himself as a pivotal member of the starting XI at the expense of Marcelo.

With Carlo Ancelotti, a coach who previously tried to sign him during his spell at Napoli, now in charge at Real Madrid, Mendy is looking to secure a pay rise to reflect his importance to the side.

Whilst Mendy's place in the side is secure for the moment, his place could start to be challenged over the coming season by certain members of the club's academy.
